Motherboard for SLI am2 build

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I am looking at getting probably an nforce 590 based board but I would like some input on anything else that maybe better and what specific brand or model you think would be best. I have read mixed reviews about biostar's board. MSI's version seems to be OKAY. Kinda looking at the ASUS version.

Would you agree in saying that the dfi nf590 would probably be a better bang for my buck?

That is a good OCer too, but for your own satisfaction, do some "review" searches on it!

My first system i got a m2n4-sli mobo it wasnt really expensive and its pretty good. 64bit holds a max of 8 gigs of ram.. oc pretty nicely.. it has a lot of auto settings which helped me really.. didnt have to change much to oc.. but i didnt oc my system hardcore either.

I was thinking on the very same mobo, the ASUS M2N4-SLI. Another good one, at around the same price range (and proven OCer) would be the DFI Infinity M2 SLI. They are both based on nF4 SLI, that's why they're cheap. Still, at that price you can't find a better OCer, and honestly I don't know if the ASUS Crosshair can surpass the 375 HTT I an running on the DFI. It's worth a peek IMO.

What! No way...Not to be going against a Mod here, but I personally feel the DFI nf590 is much better
